I’m sharing this from the MacroSW.com site.
#MacroSW is proud to be a supporter of the Voting Is Social Work Campaign!
Sign the pledge!
Voter engagement is imperative for every social worker in order to advance voter registration and education.
From the campaign website:
- Nonpartisan voter engagement is legal, ethical and professional, and central to social work values and mission.
- Communities with high voter turnout report greater well-being, and more resources and attention from elected officials.
- Voting gives people and communities the power to voice their opinion and effect social change.
